    Title: Proposed change in foot drill timings
    Audience: All Regular Service Personnel
    Applies: Following review
    Expires: N/A
    Reference: 2009DIN02-216
    Released: Estimated 4 / 2009
    Channel: 02 – Personnel
    Content: Change in foot drill timings
    Sponsor: SP Pol Ceremonial
    Contact: Miss Carrie Onstaff , SP Pol Foot Drill Review 1a, x9671 8961
    Background – The Need For Change:
    1. The current pace of 120 paces per minute ( ppm ) has remained unchanged for over 100 years.
    2. Formed bodies of Armed Forces personnel are continuing to move at this pace.
    3. There are currently faster PPM in use amongst a minority of troops
    4. Slower timings result in unnecessary delays which are avoidable
    Key Points
    Introduction of a Forces-wide pace of 140ppm would result in formed bodies of moving faster from point to point
    SP Pol Foot Drill estimates that £2.1 million pounds per annum could be saved following swifter movement of formed bodies of troops
    There will be consideration given to exempting eg. Household Division on Ceremonial and State occasions only
    There will be special transitional arrangements for personnel who are currently deployed on Operations

    2. This DIN, is an update of the draft DIN 2009DIN02-093, which describes:
    a. Rational for change
    b. Implementation process and timeframe.
    c. Cascade process
